Why is it Bad to Leave Pets in Hot Cars?
Dogs and Cats suffer from heatstroke and die every year when owners leave them in parked, hot cars. Leaving the windows down or parking in the shade is not enough to prevent this.
For example, after just 10 minutes the inside temperature of a car will reach 90 degrees if the outside temperature is just 70 degrees. Likewise, if it’s 85 degrees, after 10 minutes it’ll be 102 inside the car. And, if it’s 90 degrees out, it’ll be 109 degrees inside the car in 10 minutes.
After 30 minutes, it will be 104 in the car if it’s 70 out. And, 129 degrees inside car after 30 minutes when it’s 95 degrees out.
